Happy Turkey Day! (Is Bitcoin Dead?)

The fact that you’re reading this probably means that you live in a nation that is extremely prosperous and wealthy when compared to most nations in the world.

Our economy is competitively based, our civil liberties heavily concerned with the rights of the individual, and success can often be achieved through excellence and merit (as opposed to fist and fire).

I think Thanksgiving is an opportunity to recognize how fortunate we are to have what we have.

And if you’re a cynic and you think Thanksgiving has lost its meaning, that’s ok, no judgement. But also understand that Thanksgiving is one of the few holidays overworked Americans get to stay home for. So if you start being a shithead, they might just get upset with you.

And if that’s not enough for you, just stick around until after Black Friday. The WorldStar videos where folks are getting elbowed in the face should all be worth it.

Is Bitcoin Dead?

Yes, just like it died in 2011.

January 2011 - January 2012

And in 2012.

September 2012 - September 2013

And in 2014.

September 2013 - September 2015

And now in 2017.

January 2017 - November 2018

It is somewhat funny though how every time bitcoin died, the scale on the Y-axis we use to measure it with goes up by a magnitude or two.
